Save the Date! King’s Voices 20th Anniversary

Saturday 13 January 2018, 5.30pm

The College’s mixed Choir, King’s Voices, was set up in 1997-98 to enable women to participate in the choral musical tradition of the College. Over the years it has gone from strength to strength and is now a regular fixture in the Chapel calendar, singing Monday Evensongs during term as well as other concerts and College events.  The choir toured to Eire earlier this year as well as singing a special Choral Evensong at Hempstead in Norfolk, one of the College Livings.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Choir, a reunion event is being held on Saturday 13th January 2018, to which we would like to invite all former KV members. Choral Evensong will be sung at 5.30pm in Chapel, with a rehearsal at 3. 30 for all those who wish to participate; following the service there will be an evening reception.

If you would like to attend this event, please email the Choir Secretaries, Josh Ballance ( ) and Tara Hill ( ), giving your name, contact details, voice part and years in the choir.
